ex Travel industry professional, now writer and photographer

a unique viewpoint

My long history in the travel industry and subsequent careers in private schools marketing and business consultancy make for a unique viewpoint. I can write photograph and report back  from places I visit  - mainly independently.  I also undertake commissions from travel organisations along with travel press & media. 


Images from my travels can be seen at veebeka-images.com. Usually un-cropped to allow for perfect photo-editing in the final cut.

news, views and reviews

A curious mind, an engaging style and a representative voice of the baby boomer generation determined to spend the kids inheritance.

making the world bigger

Life doesn't stop just because you're 55+. As more and more women are finding,  being solo is no barrier to travel and adventures.  Undeniably there are special challenges for solo female travellers of 'a certain age'  (I really must find out what that means) but there are work arounds available generally. The benefits of pleasing yourself far outweigh any downsides.
